Gov. Gavin Newsom this week signed a bill authored by Assemblyman Rudy Salas creating a county redistricting commission.

Assembly Bill 2494 creates a 14-member committee whose political party affiliations will be proportional to the number of voters registered with each political party in Kern County as determined by their registration at the most recent statewide election.
